Ok. So I’ve been tagged by the Leah at the Lowdenclear blog.

Extraordinary form of the Romanum Missale

1. Do you attend the Traditional Latin Mass or the Novus Ordo?
I attend the Novus Ordo and I love it. When I can, I attend the TLM as well. Love it too.
Refuse to make a choice between the two. Would love to attend a TLM at least once a week, but not necessarily just on Sundays.

2. If you attend the TLM, how far do you drive to get there?
They don’t have regular masses every week yet here in Sweden. They plan to have however. It is not decided where yet. The Cathedral is kind of fully booked on Sundays. However I will not have to travel more than about 30 to 40 minutes to get to any of the Catholic churches in Stockholm.

3. If you had to apply a Catholic label to yourself, what would it be?
“Traditionalist” makes me think of sedevacantists and “Non-traditionalist” makes me think of “Heretic Modernist”. Dividing doesn’t work to well with the meaning of the word “catholic” – So I really don’t know… How about “Catholic”?

4. Are you a comment junkie?
I like to give some feedback, even though I haven’t always anything bright to say. I guess that’s a yes.

5. Do you go back to read the comments on the blogs you’ve commented on?

6. Have you ever left an anonymous comment on another blog?

7. Which blogroll would you most like to be on?
Blogrolls? Does it have something to do with Cannoli?

8. Which blog is the first one you check?
Usually Aussiemums since it is firt in my bookmarks. And I usually check for comments on my own.

9. Have you met any other bloggers in person?
A young guy who calls himself Minuts3.

10. What are you reading?
A history book called “Förlorarnas historia” – the loser’s history – about the reformation in Sweden from a Catholic perspective. One of the most interesting books I read in a long time. Then I’m reading a book about Data Mining and Machine learning techniques by Witten and Frank and a lot of articles about business strategy and business models. Thinking of writing a short paper on the distinction between the two.

Bonus Question! Has your site been banned by Spirit of Vatican II?
Nope, but at least some of my posts could be tagged with EM – Extreme Medievalism. 🙂

O.k. So I tag Ginny and Marie at View From The Pews.


Hi y’all. It’s been awhile since my last post. I had to take a break from writing and kind of think about where I was heading, or at least trying to catch up with myself. Well we all have our ups and downs so here’s a story on the upside:

In my building block we have a common laundry room. I lost my keys to this and all other common spaces of our block and I wasn’t able to get into the cellar and foremost I couldn’t wash me and my sons clothes. After about a week me and my son constantly overdressed, since we only had white shirts and costumes clean after awhile. Well, we looked really sharp there for awhile:

How my son and I dressed when
we went out to buy milk

About that time I Understood that I had to do something. I had really a lot of work and hadn’t time to do a thorough search but I still decided to ask St Anthony to intercede for me. I told my brother (who is living with me for the moment) and my son that I had done this… They are not catholics and of course thought it was a bit fun.

My brother even tried to tease me (in a friendly way) a little about it. He asked if Anthony had found the keys for me. I answered that St. Anthony only can help me finding the keys, he wont come and hand them over to me. I have to put at least some effort in finding them myself, then perhaps he will guide me a little…

After that being said, I turned around opened the cupboard where the keys where supposed to be – And there they lied openly for everyone to see!!!


Now I know I have looked in the cupboard before, not once but several times. Even my brother had checked this place twice.

I mean everybody in the household knows about the missing keys and have been aware of them. No one had seen them there before, because they where not there:

– But they where now!

I have had divine help before, but never have a Saint interceded so almost embarrassing obviously. Saint Anthony, you.re awesome! No wonder you’re one of our most loved saints, all times.

Saint Antonio
Pray for us, blessed Anthony, that we may
be made worthy of the promises of Christ.
